Our sustainability pillars in practice
Upgrade Estate wants to contribute to society and is always looking for added value that extends beyond meeting financial targets and results. We are committed to ecological & social sustainability, through which we can have a positive impact on society. We use the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals as a guideline for our activities.
The transition to sustainable and circular building is in full swing. Climate change is a challenge, and so are our own sustainability targets. This attitude starts with the development of our building projects and is continued during the construction process. Our long-term management guarantees continuous sustainability.
as the heroes
of the concept
Our philosophy of connection, coaching and community focuses on the tenant's experience. Our coaches are the central focus of every Upgrade Estate project.
Upgrade Estate is certified by Great Place to Work and ranks among the top 10 Best Workplaces! The 2020 survey indicated a trust index score of 93% among our co-Creators. Our Upgrade Estate working environment is characterised by a high level of confidence in the corporate strategy and management, having fun together and a sense of pride in being part of our project.
As recognition of the fact that Upgrade Estate's sustainability policy and actions are fully in line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, we received the Voka Charter Sustainable Entrepreneurship in 2021.
We support several charities run by people from within our network at home and abroad, and we established our own charity, Upgrade Solidarity, to support students who are struggling financially or mentally.
